We Are Social makes Ad Age Agency A-List


This week, we were delighted to hear that we’d been named as runner up in Ad Age’s International Agency of the Year.

The award recognises just three international agencies as having produced amazing work, with great financial results and huge potential for more. We’re incredibly proud of our team for this achievement.

This news comes just after one of We Are Social’s most successful years ever. We now have grown to a team of over 430 around the world, we’re working with some of the world’s biggest and most innovative brands to put social thinking at the centre of marketing, and for this, we’ve been rewarded with multiple accolades.

One of our most recent standout successes has been our Paris office’s Tweet & Shoot campaign for BNP Paribas. The campaign, which celebrated the bank’s 40-year partnership with The French Open, picked up three prestigious Eurobest Awards.

Tweet & Shoot also swept the board at the Cristals, with a massive five awards, along with London’s Wimbledon Wiggle for evian picking up two more and London’s Heinz: Grow Your Own picking up another.

Grow Your Own also triumphed in the MiAwards, along with We Are Social itself. Here we picked up the Agency Grand Prix, Social Media Agency of the Year and Managing Director of the Year for London MD Jim Coleman. And this was just on the back of picking up Best Large Agency at the Social Media Comms Awards!

A few other notable award wins last year were a very sought after Lovie Award for our Milan office’s Sky X Factor campaign, our Munich office winning the Social Media Strategy category in the HR Excellence Awards for Siemens: The Manager’s Call and recognition in the APAC Branded Entertainment Awards for our Sydney office with Kia: #smartsolutions.

These are just a selection of the awards we’ve won recently all over the world, but they give a clear picture that we’re producing some of the best work out there today, as well as making huge waves in the industry.

All in all, it was an amazing 2013 for We Are Social. It’s going to be a tough one to beat, but thanks to Ad Age, 2014 is already off to a great start…
